The 'Invincible Africa' tour of Dr Bevan Morris recently moved on to its second major phase, proceeding to South Africa from the four West African countries where the 14-nation tour began. Dr Morris spent several days in Johannesburg and nearby areas, before going on to Durban on the southeast coast.
The tour is part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in Africa. Dr Morris is President of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) and an international authority in all of Maharishi's programmes and technologies of consciousness, including the Transcendental Meditation programme and Consciousness-Based Education.
One focal point of Dr Morris's first days in South Africa was Maharishi Institute, the innovative, highly successful institution which was created in 2007 to 'take accessible tertiary education to another level, to showcase South Africa as a leading innovator in education provision, and create a worldwide breakthrough using the approach of Consciousness-Based Education,' according to its website.
Hosted by MI founder Dr Taddy Blecher and co-director Dr Richard Peycke, Dr Morris toured the large facility and met with several groups of students, including those participating in academic programmes through the Institute's partnership with MUM. (read more)
